I'm not aware of any such groups. Maybe you should create one.

You should start a group for Delhi, there are many T-bhpians from Delhi with German cars.

Thanks for the motivation, I find that Delhi T-BHPians are not as active as guys from other parts of the country, my observation...may be I am wrong, well I will definitely start a thread here for that as well as a Facebook group for the German car owners.

Are you aware of any specific names of Delhi T-bhpians with German cars, then I can get a head start.

As I come across them, I'll pm you. Test-drive and ownership thread would be a good place to start.

Infact, its precisely what we did.
All of us from Bombay had been communicating separately long before our group actually became reality.
It just struck me that should it work , it will be a compact group with exciting drives as the weakest car would be no less than 140hp/320NM.
Messages exchanged, it all came together and there was no looking back ! We try to have 1 drive a month with different routes and trust me its fun !
Just keep out a watchful eye, be patient and it will all work out & like f2bp said , Delhi would have plenty of bhpians with ze Europeans.

Fantastic pictures, PlatzDaTurbo! Convoy meets are amazingly fun, especially when well organized.

Might take sometime. There is no doubt there r hoards of Delhi bhpians with the europeans in their stable.
Anyway we are in the process of planning a roadtrip from Bombay for the F1 GP this year. It should be finalized by the 2nd-3rd week of september should everything go fine. You can join our convoy then

The GP drive hasn't worked out, its difficult to take a week off but a couple DDT members are flying down for the race weekend.

In other news, an awesome drive in Mumbai earlier today. Two amazing cars for this drive, owned by fellow DDT members & bhpians. Some killer roads, rolls & roars *end teaser*

To elaborate on what f2bp is saying, yesterday was different from our earlier drives. This drive involved around ~70-75 kms of pure intra-Mumbai driving. It was sort of encircling the city with a combo of both the highways (W.E.H & E.E.H) , the link between the 2 - JVLR & finally the drive up to town and back.

We were joined along the way by fellow bhpians and DDTians as we passed their respective residential areas. The end convoy had a total of 10 cars and around 14-15 bhpians. Quite an experience

fre2bpowerless - BMW Z4
Speedy- Audi S4
Lamborghini- BMW 525d (E60)
Karan561 - BMW 328i (f30)
NON bhpian - BMW 530d (f10)
Akki_5 - Mercedes E280 cdi (w211)
lamboguy - New VW Jetta
NON bhpian - Skoda Superb 2.8 V6 petrol
Contagoback - BMW 320d (e90)
& PlatzdaTurbo - Audi A4 3.0 TDi

Us along with a few other members like cartman, akshay1234, adishenoy & dippy completed the group.
